NZTBA's online catalogue proves very popular

Spring 2006 is proving to be the busiest period ever for the NZTBA's online marketplace, Horses for Sale or Lease.

There are probably several reasons for that: the closure of the Friday Flash, with its popular classified section; the Council's decision to accept sale listings, as well as horses for lease; increased entry-level investment in the industry, following this year's long-awaited taxation changes; and the NZTBA site's higher profile, since its re-launch in April.

NZTBA chief executive Michael Martin says, "The ability to post listings on the NZTBA site, free of charge, is a valuable benefit of membership, and we're delighted to see so many members making use of it.

"Listings offering or requesting broodmares or racing prospects for sale or lease can be made only by NZTBA members, but anyone is welcome to respond to listings. Website editor Susan Archer manages the online catalogue, and is available to help members write listings.

Broodmares currently offered for sale or lease in the NZTBA's online catalogue include:




  • mare by champion NZ broodmare sire Centaine
  • winning mare by Centro, damsire of two-time
